Dale McDorman

BEAUFORT, S.C. (July 31, 2020) – In the wake of the death of Beaufort Police Chief Matthew Clancy, Deputy Police Chief Dale McDorman has been named the interim chief of the Police Department.

“We are fortunate that Chief Clancy developed a strong Command Staff led by Deputy Chief McDorman,” said City Manager Bill Prokop. “With the passing of the chief, Deputy Chief McDorman will assume the role of interim chief and will report to me.”

Chief Clancy passed away of complications from cancer on July 29. He was named chief in 2009.

Prokop added, “We are very proud of our entire Police Department and we know that Chief Clancy had great respect and pride in everyone of our officers and our entire Command Staff. We will be establishing a process in the near future for the appointment of a chief. In the meantime, Interim Chief McDorman will be in command of the department.”

McDorman joined the Beaufort Police Department in April 1995. He was promoted to sergeant/operations supervisor in October 1999, and to lieutenant/operations in April 2005. In 2010, McDorman was promoted to deputy chief.
